Vertical Metal Garage Sizes
Carport1 offers numerous options for the dimension of our vertical roof metal garages for sale. The smallest of our vertical garage has a size of 12’ in width, 21’ in length and 7’ in height. Our vertical metal garages are categorized on the basis of the width of the garage and the number of cars that can be stored underneath its roof. Single metal garages start at a width of 12’, double metal garages start at 20’ width while triple wide metal garages start at 26’ width.
As for the length, vertical metal garages can be as long as you desire. From 21’, the length of the metal garage increases in increments of 5′.
When selecting the height of the metal, make sure that you have sufficient space for the installation of openings. Most of the framed openings require space for the header, and in case of garage doors, the barrels or the rolls of the shutter also require some space.
Vertical Metal Garages Roof Style
Vertical metal garages are those metal garages that come with an A-framed roof structure with vertical roof panels. The bows of the roof are welded to the legs or the posts of the structure. The slight roof overhangs and the side-eave trims that run underneath those overhangs forms a part of the A-framed look. Additionally, vertical metal garages also have horizontal hat channels that run along the length of the metal garage. The ridge cap covers the seam at the top of the garage where the vertical panels meet.
Color Options with Vertical Roof Metal Garages
To give you more control over the aesthetics of your metal garage we offer 15 different color options which are included in our color catalog. Picking the appropriate color combination through the color of the roof panels, the wall panels, and the trims can help to improve the curb appeal of the vertical metal garage.
Additional Features for Vertical Metal Garages
Additional features for these metal structures include the installation of openings such as the walk-in doors, windows and garage doors. These openings, along with being the chief source of movement, also let light and air circulate inside the building. Good design of a metal garage involves proper placement and distribution of these openings.
The openings that we offer come in some standard dimensions and design. Windows for our metal garages are 30” x 30” and are all single-pane. Similarly, the walk-in doors have a size of 36” x 80”. Garage doors are all roll-ups garage doors and their sizes start at 6’ x 6’.
Structural Strength of Vertical Metal Garages
The three factors that influence the structural strength of the vertical metal garages are the frame thickness, use of anchors and the bracing for the structure.
The thicknesses of the steel components are measured by units called steel gauge. Higher steel gauge means the steel element has less thickness and strength. Most of our non-certified garages come with 14-gauge steel framing. But for added strength or for certification, you can upgrade the garage with 12-gauge framing. Likewise, the metal sheets that are used for non-certified units are of 29-gauge with an option of upgrading to 26-gauge metal sheets.
Anchors secure the metal garages to the ground surface for better structural stability. The use of anchors for metal garages depends on the ground surface as well as the certification of the building. The four types of metal garage anchors that we use are:
Rebar anchors: For non-certified units over dirt/asphalt surfaces
Mobile home anchors: For certified units over dirt/asphalt surfaces
Concrete/ Wedge anchors: For units over concrete surfaces
Lag Bolts: For units over wooden surface. We do not certify installations over wooden surfaces.
As for the braces, all of our metal garages for sale come with at least 4 corner braces. These braces help to fix the roof structure to the legs of the metal garage. They reduce the movement of the roof in weather conditions which can put great stress on the structure. For non-certified vertical metal garages, we offer the option of additional braces and bows at an extra cost. Certified metal garages do not require additional support since they are designed to withstand snow and wind loads of that specific place.
What Makes Vertical Roof Metal Garages So Strong?
Vertical metal garages derive their strength from the A-framed roof. While at a glance boxed eave metal garages and vertical metal garages may look similar, there are many structural differences between the two which contributes to the structural superiority of the vertical garages. The addition of structural elements like the hat channels, ridge cap, etc. reinforces the robustness of these metal garages.
The welded transition from the bows to the leg of the garage is also stronger than the bent transition of regular garages. Since water, snow, and debris do not stand for long on the roof of vertical garages, the structure does not have to sustain heavy loads. This also preserves the structural integrity of the vertical roof metal garage and helps it last for years and years.
Pros of Vertical Metal Garages
- These metal garages have an unparalleled structural strength and offer great durability.
- Snow, debris, and water just slide off the vertical panels of the roof and hence these metal garages require the least maintenance and cleaning efforts among the three roof style. Since moisture does not accumulate on the ridges of the roof, there is less possibility of rusting of the panels.
- The A-framed roof style blends more easily with the architecture of a traditional house.
- These metal garages provide maximum protection to your valuables in all weather conditions. They are also very effective against theft and vandalism.
Cons of Vertical Metal Garages
- Vertical metal garages are not as affordable as the other two options, mainly because the additional structural elements, like the ridge cap and hat channels, increase the material cost. The initial costliness of these garages may be the only disadvantage of purchasing these structures. However, they more than make-up for it through the protection they offer and their durability.
